Year 3 will learn that not all bees live in a hive, or make honey, and will find out a little about the mason bee. We will explore the feelings brought up by having to struggle at a task on our own without any help, and then use these feelings to inspire us to do something to help increase our school's bee habitats. We will think about WHY bees may be in danger and what we as humans can do about it. As part of our exploration into bees, we will use wax to make an alternative to cling film food wrap to take home. We will then use some familiar and some new tools to make a home for Mason bees to live in as well as plant some plants that we know the bees will enjoy as part of a 'bee corridor.' As they get ready to move into Year 4, they will prepare for the future by ‘Telling the Bees’, an ancient European custom, at their summer celebration ceremony.
